Here is the sentence:
When Fabiana flied from Dallas to Orlando, the plane hit such a bad patch of turbulence that the passengers felt as if they were riding a rickety rollercoaster at the state fair.
The first verb, flied, is a spelling error. As you know, the sentence requires the simple past, flew.
